NOT FAIR.

Was just heading to the kitchen, yeah, on the tail-end of a glass hunt for the washing up. Went down the step, right ankle went over. I was actually more concerned with not breaking another glass and thankfully managed to catch onto the bannister (opposite) before I actually fell down properly, placed the glass carefully on the floor and then sort of collapsed onto the floor groaning in agony.

It's the same ankle I twisted a few years ago. It hurt like an absolute bastard for about five minutes but I seem to be able to stand on it... ish. I wrapped it up in a self-adhesive support bandage (my actual ankle bandage appears to have gone AWOL) and attempted to finish the washing up, but then started to feel sick. I mean, I consider myself to have a high pain threshold, but not when things are continually throbbing... It doesn't hurt as much as it did when I broke it (and I didn't hear it snap this time, either) but it's definitely a weak spot and I'm not taking any chances.

I did the bandage again a bit lighter and will sit quietly for the rest of the evening. If it's still bad tomorrow I'll just have to go to A&E. As much as a week off work would be appreciated, it's taken this long for the foot to sort itself out from last time. And, you know, I have shitloads of stuff to do tomorrow so this is incredbly bloody inconvenient.

STUPID BODY. GO BOTHER SOMEONE ELSE.

Hope you heal up quickly! I just had a stack steel pans fall on my right foot yesterday evening at work :-P I think I'll live, I'll just keep off of it for a few days, and kill the damn dishwasher who stacked the pans wrong in the first place!
